'Mental gymnastics': Patrick O'Flynn mocks Remainers moaning about lack of US trade deal

“Wasn’t that the main aim, post leaving the EU?”

But former MEP Patrick O’Flynn has pointed out that a trade deal with the states was never an aim of the Leave campaign that won the referendum in 2016.

Writing for Spiked, Mr O’Flynn said: “It is hard to remember another occasion on which false-memory syndrome has fused with hypocrisy in such a striking way.

“For a start, in the build-up to the EU referendum, it was the Remain team that weaponised the idea of a trade deal with the US to the greatest extent, not the Leave team.”
